How do you get a misdemeanor expunged?
Everybody’s record matters, your reputation matters, and everyone realizes or should realize that a criminal record is more than just about an embarrassment. In today’s world, it’s just an internet click away for an employer or a school or a friend to look and find out whether or not you have a criminal record. It’s important to protect your reputation. Until recently in Pennsylvania, if you had a felony or misdemeanor conviction the only outcome you had was to seek a partner which can take two to four years or wait for age 70. Most recently in past few months, the legislature has passed an amendment to the expungement laws that says that, even with a misdemeanor conviction, you can obtain an expungement within seven to 10 years from the date of the conviction as long as you stayed clear during that time period. An expungement is important because an expungement is a process where you file with the court to ask for the public record of that charge to being removed. This is your clean shave. This is your opportunity to move on with your life and it’s something that the experienced attorneys at Ciccarelli law offices can help you.
